First Modules Installed at Cambridge Student Scheme

Pickstock Construction’s student accommodation scheme in Cambridge has seen its first room modules installed this week.


Pickstock Construction is working with Elements Europe again, to offer a modular solution to the scheme.


Elements Europe has worked closely with architects Jefferson Sheard and Pickstock Construction to modularise the triangular shape building for its client.


This week has seen the first of the 98 room modules installed, all room modules, floor and ceiling corridor cassettes, light steel frame panels and roof cassettes will be craned into position in just 4 weeks.


The former petrol station site, is on the corner of a busy junction leading into the city. A key consideration for this project has been logistics and deliveries. These have been scheduled to ensure minimal disruption to commuters and local residents.


When completed the building will have retail outlets on the ground floor with three floors of high quality student accommodation above. Part of the third floor includes a mansard roof which will also be modularised.


The 98 rooms are made up of 75 studios and 23 en-suite rooms that offer students at the University of Cambridge a modern yet comfortable place to live during their studies.


Dave Malkin, Site Manager commented “Our experience working alongside Elements Europe is one that is fine-tuned, we can therefore expect a quick and efficient install of modules.”
